Taskers is a leading furniture and interior design business based in Accrington, that's been part of the community for over 127 years - supplying to the whole of the UK. In order to further their corporate social responsibility, they have made a generous donation to Accrington Stanley Community Trust by sponsoring their 3G area at the Stanley Sports Hub.

Accrington Stanley Community Trust do great work for the community, engaging with 13,000 people per year in areas such as fitness, wellbeing, employability and education - with an estimated 150,000 visits in the next 12 months. They are a registered charity, and help people participate, develop and achieve across all age groups and backgrounds. 

Martin Fearon, CEO of Accrington Stanley Community Trust explained more about the donation: "As a charity we rely on financial support to be able to deliver all our programmes in addition to the new facilities at over £3m we are constantly investing in.

"We have asked business leaders in the area to support us through Amazing Accrington, and it's fantastic news that Taskers, who are literally 300 yards away have stepped up to support and be a key sponsor for our 3G provision. 3G is particularly important to us as it means we can still be out in all weathers."

Ivor Lefton, managing director of Taskers, spoke more about the importance of supporting their local community: "When we look to sponsor community activity, we don't just want our name on it, we want to know the money is being put to good use.

"I have to say the work Martin and his team are delivering is world class for Accrington, and helps lift the aspirations of the next generation whilst keeping us all healthy in body and mind. The courses are often free to the community who needs them, such as some of the summer activities and group programmes.

"I'm really impressed by the outreach work they do with the police in Hyndburn townships to get kids into sport and avoid anti-social behaviour.

"I am actively asking other businesses to step forward, and support and help Martin and the team to make a difference in our local area. 

Jimmy Bell, assistant manager of Accrington Stanley FC, added: "Accrington Stanley Community Trust do brilliant work with the local community for the club. They engage with over 13,000 people and deliver amazing results in lots of areas, it's not just football. They're expecting 150,000 visits in the next year, and they really need your support to help them do this, so if you're interested in stepping up like Taskers, do get in touch!"
